This series of nine pre-configured and customizeable Microsoft Excel restaurant spreadsheets organizes critical data from your daily POS system sales, labor reports and food and beverage bills.
Use them to ensure that opportunities for proactive management don't pass you by. All too often, POS data is automatically posted to accounting software without critical review by a manager, and then the ability to make timely decisions is lost.
The spreadsheets come with detailed instructions. They can easily be customized by an experienced Excel user. Simply unprotect the worksheet, make your changes and then re-protect it again.
The entire set of nine Excel workbooks are $129, a huge savings compared to purchasing them individually.
The files are downloadable for immediate free delivery.

Daily Sales Report plus Labor Summary: The worksheet tracks your sales data from cash register or POS reports and organizes daily and week-to-date results. Print the report at the close of each day and share with key management. Monitor sales by category and track weekly trends.
Labor expenses are also tracked by department against the sales so you can check your daily and week-to-date labor costs as a percentage of sales. The spreadsheet allocates your labor costs by department (e.g. Kitchen, Front of House, Managers, etc.) utilizing the labor report information from your POS report and salaried employee inputs. The report also accounts for estimated employer tax expenses. Monitor your daily and weekly labor expenses as compared to labor targets that you choose. A very powerful tool!

Weekly Sales & Prime Costs ($49): This spreadsheet takes this spreadsheet series to its logical conclusion by also accounting for your weekly food and beverage purchases as well as beginning and ending food and beverage inventories. The result is a weekly cost of goods sold (COGS) summary and a prime cost report which indicate your restaurant's total F&B usage plus Gross Labor in both total dollars and as a percentage of the current week's sales. Use this report to manage both your labor and your purchases and to keep expenses in line with sales budgets.

Employee Schedule & Labor Cost: This is one powerful tool that every restaurant operator should be using! This helps you schedule every labor hour of the day to provide you with instant feedback of the costs associated with your scheduling decisions. Compare the labor expense of each scenario with your projected sales to determine optimum employee scheduling. Then use the plan to create your actual weekly schedule and track the actual labor costs against your plan and actual sales for feedback. There is no better way to effectively keep labor costs in line with actual sales!
